    "When you're in a pennant race, you don't really have to focus," Ichiro said. The key to Ichiro Suzuki's seventh hit on Wednesday was taking the same approach to home plate that he did for each of his earlier at-bats in the Yankees' doubleheader with the Blue Jays, he said. But with "Ich-i-ro" chants echoing throughout Yankee Stadium, a tied game in the eighth inning and sole possession of first place in the American League East on the line, Ichiro knew this at-bat was the very reason he arrived in New York via a midseason trade. "I came in the middle of the season and I always wanted to contribute, wanted to help in this pennant race and today is a great day that I was able to help," said Suzuki, who was acquired in a trade from Seattle in late July. "I'm very sad the day is over."
